I am a visual artist and self publisher.

I am interest in exploring the idea/form/structure of books in a conceptual way, and thus reading engagement is an important part of my work - I tend to use books to create mental contexts based on both common knowledge and imagination space stimulated by personal experiences as well as social background.

Usually you will find open narratives hidden within images or language gaps along with a sense of light humor or suspense in my books.
